He's selling $500,000 homes in the burbs. Or trying to, but this is the perfect time to do that, as the boom is on.

Gentrification is one of the big threats to the shop as neighborhoods that nobody thought would ever flip are flipping. It's really hard to imagine it moving that far north though...

But Steve reports that since the end of the Broad Street Line subway is a block away, white people are now Ubering to it from the north, in order to reach center city. This was a kind of unforeseen thing and may have caused a fairly decent pizza place to move in. (I wonder if they realize they can't do this at night. People will get shot and jacked waiting for an Uber there.)
